(1) John J. Higgins and Barb Adams – From FISA to Visas – Trumps’ “Stable Genius” Week
Last week, Michael Wolff’s book, Fire and Fury, brought into question the president’s mental competence and whether he’s unfit to do his job. This week, Trump appears to be proving Wolff’s summary correct.
On Tuesday, the president rapidly flip-flopped on DACA–first agreeing with a DACA-only proposal immediately followed by a “can’t be DACA-only” proposal. Even worse, Trump didn’t seem to comprehend his inconsistency or that they were different viewpoints.
By Thursday, however, the White House was scrambling to cover for the president. Trump began the day by attacking re-authorization of the FISA surveillance program, considered a done-deal by Republicans and top intelligence officials. The president went so far as to tweet that the FISA program may have been used to “badly surveil and abuse” his campaign. Either he’s “badly” paranoid or a puppet of FOX News, which had aired a story earlier before his tweet on why the surveillance program should not be re-upped. But that wasn’t the end of it…Trump then reversed himself with a “…We need it! Get smart!” tweet.
Trump wasn’t done yet, though. He went on to brag that he “probably” has “a very good relationship with Kim Jong Un.” Wait, had he spoken to Little Rocket Man recently or was he referring to the leader of South Korea, President Moon Jae-in? We may never know. When asked, Trump replied “I don’t want to comment on it. I’m not saying I have or haven’t” (spoken with Kim Jong Un). This from the man whose “button is bigger.”
Then came the piece de resistance. During a meeting with lawmakers regarding immigration in the Oval Office on Thursday, Trump became frustrated with restoring protections for immigrants from Haiti, El Salvador and African countries, blurting out “Why are we having all these people from shithole countries come here?” Unable to stop himself, Trump then suggested that the U.S. should bring more people from countries like Norway. Not only stupid, insensitive and outrageous, but out-and-out racist! White countries “good,” black/brown countries “bad.” This is the President of the United States??? Sick!!!
